Little Mix have a make-up range for Collection - do you have a favourite product?

"I am obsessed with the clear mascara. My lashes are so curly and thick, they're so annoying, so I use that and it really gets them in place. In the daytime I like to be as natural as possible. So during the day I will only wear clear mascara, I've got it on right now. It's perfect if you don't want to wear too much and just play it down. I just like being really natural, as natural as I can."

Which products could you not live without?

"I cannot live without a bit of contour on my cheeks. I can't live without my lip balm. If I just want to chill but still want to look a little bit 'done up', I'll put lots and lots of lip balm on. It just looks more glossy."

Talk us through your beauty routine...

"My skincare is really important. I used to have really bad skin when I was younger. I'm a bit spotty now because I am tired. I've basically just got Aesop products. I am obsessed with them. I have the cleanser, the toner and the moisturiser. They have fixed my skin. It's important for me to feel comfortable with my skin. When I get spotty it just makes me not want to talk to anyone, so it's really important I look after my skin."

Fave fragrance?

"My favourite is Lancôme La Vie Est Belle, £44 for 30ml, and I love Chanel Chance, £47.50 for 35ml, and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, £49.50 for 30ml."

Have you picked up any make-up tips from the pros?

"Lots, I didn't have a clue how to put my make-up on before, I had no idea. My make-up artist taught me everything - how to use under-eye concealer and how to put gel liner on properly. Absolutely everything."

What's your biggest beauty regret?

"I used to wear really big lashes, I'd wear them on the [X Factor] shows and I look back and think, 'Why did I do that?' I looked horrible. My eyes are really small so I need lashes to fit them."

Do you have a fail-safe beauty look?

"On a normal day, I will put some mascara on and then just a nude lip, just keep it very natural really. I use my clear mascara to tame my brows, separate my lashes and keep my look really natural."

What do you like to do on a girls' night in?

"I love girls' nights in, me and my friends always do them. Nachos, we love our nachos. A good film. We talk about boys. My friend used to bring round her tarot cards and do readings. We do a lot of pranks as well."

How does it feel spending so much time in front of the cameras?

"We are used to it now. It's a part of the job. It is sometimes hard when you want to wear nothing on your face and slobber around, then out of nowhere there's a pap hiding behind the corner. You begin to embrace it though."
